Even if you’re a person who experiences worry, even if you’re all too familiar with the mental turmoil and physical pain of anxiety, most of us don’t know how to help others who are dealing with similar challenges. Even worse, we find that anxiety in others starts to cause anxiety in ourselves. In this episode, Ed and Renee walk us through ways to calm and comfort our anxious family members and friends without escalating their experience or trying to match their emotions ourselves.
Dear Anxiety is a podcast for all ages to talk about the difficult emotions so many of us struggle with. We share research-based solutions for the greater mental wellness of your family, and we hope you’ll laugh with us along the way. Join hosts Ed Crasnick, a comedian and Emmy Award winning writer, and Renee Jain, positive psychology guru and founder of GoZen!
